Question rattling sound rear left wheel

I recently bought a 2005 BMW X3 2.0d. There is a rattling / click sound from the rear left wheel when pulling off in 1st gear and with change over into 2nd. the same sound is heard when turning right on pull off.

Supa Quick CV fitment assured me that it is not the CV Joint. They rather replaced the rear shocks which was needed.

A machanic at the local service centre greased the CV boots and could not find the origin of this sound. Suggestions or help would be highly appreciated.

Is it OK to fit a diesel chip to improve fuel consumption.
